Or is it?
It’s no secret that having a Business Coach on board will enable a business owner to succeed, grow their business and fulfil their life and business goals.
Or is it?
Boracay was one of my most favourite experiences on this trip to date. We went in the 'off season' however, the weather was absolutely beautiful. To get to Boracay you can fly to either Kalibo (and catch a bus for 2.5 hours to Caticlan) or you can fly direct to Caticlan, which is the closest airport to Boracay.
I have recently spent three days in Manila, staying in Makati. We drove to Manila from Clark, which was about a 1.5 hour drive. To get out of Angeles, Pamapanga and into Manila we had to pass through two gates, which were a little bit like the bridge on the Gateway Motorway heading north towards Brisbane airport, except instead of cameras and a govia tag, you stop at a little window and pay cash to get a ticket to pass through.
I have now been in the Philippines for two weeks, and I am learning so much! Before I came here, I had heard a lot about Outsourcing, Offshoring and how globalisation was making international business cheaper and more accessible for service providers all over the world. It wasn't until I actually landed right in the middle of it, that I actually understood what offshoring (and outsourcing) looked like from the inside.
This week I travelled from Clark to Manila to meet with outsourcing companies and find out all about how they operate and what kind of services they provide. Depending on what tasks you would like to outsource, there are plenty of providers, and agencies, available to help you to outsource some of your business processes.
I have been quite busy working researching BPO centres in the Philippines since I arrived. Last week I spent 4 days working within an Australian BPO Office, and I also visited another Australian BPO provider. Currently, I have only seen these centres in Clark, Pampanga, however, I will be travelling to Manila this week to see how business is done there.
A while back, I read a book from Brian Klemmer called “If How-To's Were Enough We Would All Be Skinny, Rich & Happy.” How true, how true it is. We all know how to do something. We know what foods we should eat. We know to set goals and we know what action to take in order to get the goals.
Business Coaching is an exciting career that gives you the opportunity to assist business owners succeed in their businesses. We all know people who help others achieve their goal, inspire friends and family to persevere in the face of adversity and refuse to allow them to wallow in the seeming security of a mediocre business environment.
